Ask a p-psychologist anything!
I'm h-here for you, Anonymous
He founded the individual school of psychology, focusing more on goals than instincts; he believed individuals had wants and needs that needed to be fulfilled due to the inherent "creative force" of humanity.
More of a philosopher than a psychologist, though he did give us the inferiority complex and a few other good things.
Why would I leave my own home?
Is this psych 101 day?
You can't, unless you are a cop; that's not a medical term, it's a criminal term.
There is only one active to my knowledge, so just Alice will do.
Well, ok then.
There is this ex, we've done alot of shit to ourselves, she has hurt my feelings alot, and so did I hurt her's.
But still, after we broke up, after a while, we became friends, than we're enemies again, etc.
Than, out of nowhere, we became friends with benefits, and it actually worked out!
Now we are enemies again, but the thing is that I still think about her sometimes, I even dream about her (Nothing kinky, just cute stuff)
And after all of this, I don't know if I love her, I don't know if I hate her, I don't know if I have neutral feelings against her, I don't know anything.
Sometimes I'm glad that I've got rid of her, sometimes I miss her, alot.
I dunno what to do annony, and don't say I should kill myself, I already know that lol, so no need to be fgt guys.
*About the MBTI test, do you think that it is a reliable way to classify someone's personality? Could it be that after reading the result someone may act in a similar way to their result because they somewhat got unconsciously affected by it?*
are these threads here everyday or something?
I mean....this is very typical. There are things you love about her, and things you hate about her. The things you love are strong, and bind you together when you are dating, but aren't enough to hold together a true relationship, so you guys keep breaking up.
This is pretty typical; just don't have a kid together and you'll be fine.
The MBTI is known to be pseudo-science. It's like astrology; a fun amusement, not a real psychological tool.
Glad to be of service <4 The medical term is ASPD.
OKAI thanks i dont have any need for psychological help so i'll go back to the waifu threads
Why is this stuttering retarded thread posted multiple times a day? I know this is 4chan and everyone is really cool here with super edgy self-diagnosed mental health issues, but come the fuck on.
I was apathy guy last night but the thread died before i got a response.
the TLDR is this, im 33, male, UK
at age 22 i was in college, my then gf lied about being on the pill and fell pregneant then broke up with me, her meal ticket in hand, i broke down somewhat and turned to drink and weed and anything else i could get hold of that would blur the world for me. Some 8 years or so passed of me doing nothing but working and getting wasted. 5 years ago i changed job, and decided to improve my life, i payed off my debts andgave up drink and drugs, with giving up the drugs i lost my friends, they had no interest in me being sobre and i no interest in themm high, I havent had a gf since the pilll girl. My social circle consists of 2 people that ive known online for a long time through gaming and MSN, the only other ppl i have contact with are my co workers, nice enough ppl but from another generation, and few common interests. Anyway, the job i have now pays well enough for me to have some spare cash every week and i work shifts, so i get 4 days off in every 8 but i never do anything....i have ideas but i just cant motivate myself, when im at work i plan for what im going to do on my free days and then when im at home i just shitpost or play vidya or watch movies...i cant seem to motivate myself...im not a stupid person and i know im destined for more than what im doing now but i can never take that first step.
HTF do i move forward with my life?? Why am i holding myself back???
You've clearly demonstrated, in this post, a need for psychological help
You realize a lot of people here take medication right? You can't exactly get a prescription from your self diagnosing doctor.
Might need to work on improving yourself then.
Nah, I'm a programmer, so think more NSA
*I knew it was not to be trusted, i've got a couple of friends that would be willing to kill to demonstrate the reliability of that test, i'm obviously overstating about them but you get what i'm saying.*
You realize motivation does not come from some magic right? It's gotten by doing things; you need to pick up a project and start working on it again. Maybe see a psychologist or councilor, and definitely get off the drugs.
That's not empowered or confidence; anger causes a sense of entitlement and unwarranted self importance though. You need to work on your self esteem, maybe pick up some things and get some achievements so you have true confidence.
There is absolutely no reliability to that test.
The same reason we keep using lie detectors, even though they are basically worthless. And the same reason police keep forcing confessions out of people.
Because the legal system is fucking broken dude.
You have a waifu and/or post in waifu threads.
A more virulent and harmful form of cancer I have never seen, even in this wretched chan of scum and villainy.
Go to anger management classes; you are addicted to the anger because it releases dopamine, just like coke does.
Good morning Alice~ How did you sleep? Well I hope!
Don't have one.
Generally, some form of CBT is necessary, treating him to be mindful of, and outthink, the anger.
Autism mostly. Someone running a smear campaign against me; look at the testimonial page to see the truth from people I've actually helped.
Jeez, those stockings.
I slept okay. I keep getting up at exactly 6am every night to urinate though. Quite odd.
You can't; you aren't a trained professional. Look into the DSM-5 for the symptom list.
Why do you keep asking?
theres nothing wrong with have a waifu or conversing with people on waifu threads.
I quite enjoy wearing stockings~ You should know that!
That does seem a bit odd that it's right on the hour! Are you working hard today or hardly working? :P
huh? no i dont
My problem IS starting projects, i have ideas but never take that first step, Ive got an outline for a book i want to write, reading is whats gotten me through the no social life and giving up drugs of the last 4-5 years, But i fire up my word processor and then just sit and stare at it....i cant get started....I think my problem is that i fucked up so much of my life in the past that now ive gotten a job that pays ok and a secure home Im afraid to try anything new incase i fuck it up again....how do i get over it?
You will not know until you do it. Consider a cost/benefit analysis but know that you cannot predict your emotional reaction with much accuracy beforehand.
Don't live in fear. Do what you gotta do.
I feel unfulfilled and unmotivated to ever advance in any skill i'm interested in
video games and work are becoming boring
everything is fading to gray
nothing feels that good anymore except sparse interaction with friends
sleep is hard to come by
and i just don't feel "right" anymore
i'm heavily questioning my sexuality and feel riddled with guilt most of the time just from shit that isn't normal or perceived that way sometimes
Yes, anything anyone claims on this board must be true including the medications they take and disease they have. I honestly hope you are not overseeing the care of another human because you are dangerously stupid.
That's the way it is.
There is plenty of evidence that such obsessions are unhealthy.
Doing nothing yet.
That means you need to write a schedule! Break the project into tiny bits, that are easy to do. Prioritize them by ease. Do them one by one, using the motivation from completing one to finish the rest.
That lowers the barrier to entry.
*It seems like my doubts about it turned out to be true. Anyway, you've raised quite a number of loyal posters with your threads, have you ever seen this anon in the past?*
Yeah, and just because some people lie means all people do, right?
That's anhedonia; you should seek medical attention.
That is not normal; teens can get anhedonia and depression same as anyone else.
Uhh. No. Just once. It was weird.
I too am doing nothing at the moment~ Just trying to wake up. I'm still pretty tired and I had a very very bizarre dream
ema is my most favourite character ever. i understand loving 2D is unhealthy but i have no control over who i love
Do I have ADHD? I can't focus, can't start work and daydream often. I also feel like something is missing in my brain. I was severely depressed about a year ago, but significantly improved over that time.
i still laugh and think im having fun sometimes, it's hard to tell if i can't feel it
sorry for questioning your judgement, just feels weird to think im missing an entire range of feelings
I wasn't going to tell YOU about it, that's for sure
Legal. Legal route is always best.
5 times might be excessive, but as long as you aren't chafing, should be fine.
Yes, yes you do. Human beings were not meant to love pictures. Go outside, start interacting with your peers more.
Maybe! Ask a doctor!
It's not "missing"; it's blunted, or hard to raise.
Anhedonia is sort of like a mild form of depression or mood blunting; it's mostly when you don't enjoy things you used to, which you clearly are indicating.
Seek medical attention Anonymous; don't take my word for it, just go get it checked out.
I'm not a psychiatrist, so my thoughts on the matter are meaningless.
I'm a woman, so madam please.
*He/she might just be a roleplayer but i had an uneasy sensation about him/her too.*
i know its not an obsession
i do everyday and no one compares to my ema
Odd, given I'm a behaviorist and neuropsychopharmacologist, and I'm basing pretty much all I say on that and CBT related techniques.
No, I am a psychologist. Read the header.
Yep. Definitely need to seek medical attention. Your "ema" is not real, and also not yours.
In the case of PTSD, yes. In other cases, no.
how can i break up with someone who is depressed?
i broke up with her a few months ago and it lasted like a week or two
she literally cried herself back to me
i just couldn't watch her be so sad because i actually care about her i just don't want her as my partner
sometimes she takes her meds sometimes she doesn't and keeps saying how she'll get better soon and i won't have to deal with her depression and stuff like that but i know it won't happen i've know her for at least 5 years now (really close friends for 4 years and in relationship for ~1 year)
it'd be nice to have her as a friend again but i really don't want to be in a relationship with her
she also suffers from panic attacks and eats xanax pills like candy (she knows a doctor who will write any pill for her so she can easily get it) she was also an addict for quite some time which she didn't seem to mind when i spoke with her and according to her now she's clean
so yeah basically the question would be how do i break up with her (and possibly still be friends) without like breaking her hearth cuz last time i was gentle as fuck when i broke up with her and later when i went through her messages i learned that it would have been better if i just yelled at her and stuff like that but i wouldn't want to do that if it's not nessecery
we are both 20yo
Alright Anons, time for me to get to work.
I'll be available at [email protected]; feel free to email me if you need me.
Look, if someone needs help they can seek it with a certified, legitimate professional in person and not from some random weeaboo posting on a board notorious for deceit and treachery. Posing as any sort of professional and giving misguided advice to individuals in a sensitive state is not only unethical and irresponsible - it's dangerous. These are people's lives. And, yes, with regards to your curt, pointless response everyone lies you naive cunt.
Trolls only get one reply per thread!! Stop being selfish!
i know what i feel
'kay i'll be heading back to my thread, see ya alice!
I had a major falling out with friends a few years ago. There was stress, misunderstandings and some nasty allegations. I did hurt them and some of my behavior was abhorrent. Despite trying to reconcile they were adament that it was over.
Do you think this is a circumstance where there is no possibility of future contact? Forgive the cliche, but we were very close friends and our falling out had more to do with my youthful foolishness and depression than an incompatibility.
I struggle with memories and thoughts of them. I feel (and to a degree know) that I have stagnated and they have continued life. I cannot convey in words the whole situation and emotions. Any help would be nice. I am so lost.
>Broke up with bf
>Tells me we'll never get back together
>Wishes me a good life then blocks me
>I found a way to message him
>We fought over the phone
>I tell him to think positively
>He tells me he will call me few times a week
>2 days later he calls me
>Asks me about me, my family, my life, my health
>He seems nice and friendly
>I'm still blocked
Why is he doing this if he told me he has no feelings for me? Shall I play hard to get so he'll enjoy the hunt ? What can I do ?
I'm 18, I will be moving out of my house and into a different country, but to do that, I need to go through some paperwork, deal with the embassy.
It is taking some time, mostly due to my procrastination and my mother decided that it is because I don't want to move out.
*"Some random weeaboo" It is fine by me if you want to debate about her knowledge regarding this delicate subject, but using ad hominems it's not fine by me, consider using only legitimated arguments .*
Ikaros said she won't post here anymore (which is a good thing) lets just leave it alone.
Well I am and that's too bad for you. No one in their right mind would lie about themselves for 10 FUCKING years.
*Consider giving me a proper explanation about your previous statement in my regards.*
>doing something with your days
I have no money due to no job, and buses here are expensive
I won't get a job because although it is taking some time, I still want to leave this continent
*That would be highly hypocritical from my part considering that i do not like that kind of behaviour, i'd rather stay here to keep annoying you.*
Ikaros is the completely opposite of good.
Me too, I had to do something.
Oh boy you're falling for her spell. Don't be fooled by a pretty face and warm smile.
What does it mean when a girl repetitively accuses me of being attracted to other women, up to and beyond two months after she simply saw me look at a girl.
and honestly I wasn't even checking the other girl out.
now she wants me to admit that I find other girls attractive and that I was checking out the girl.
she tells me its okay and she has come to terms with it, and if I just admit i'm attracted to the other girl she'll stop.
now i'd love to just admit to what ever to make the bs stop but I just don't know how to admit to something I honestly don't think.
we live together for 2 years.
I feel emotionally abused.
>Autism : My schoolmates in both elem and highschool said i have this so maybe it's treue
Sorry anon , I will never fell for it
Wo-ah dude calm down I didn't any pick a side of them
(My Last post )
Please reconsider what you say. Ikaros is a known psychopath that has done terrible evil to the people in her real life and online. She has no conscience, no soul, no heart, no feelings. She's impulsive and has sadistic tendencies which she acts upon. She could see you dying on the street and have no remorse for you whatsoever. You're falling for the psychopath's charm and charisma when you say "Because me and Ika have a good conversations every thread more like many weeks ago I am still going to miss her.", she will make you regret each and every one of those words when the mask comes off, I promise you. Stay away.
I'm probably too late to the thread, but
undergrad graduating from 2yr right now.
going to go to Montclair state or drew.
best advice for someone who wants to go to grad school but definitely doesn't want to do clinical?
pic pretty related
easiest way to put it she's extremely insecure and unless you guys are really young gtfo
if you think you're truly in love talk to her about the whole thing. obviously you find other people attractive even if it wasn't that specific girl in question
How much would a university student of psychology could know after the first year of studies.
I recently started dating this girl from university, who studies psychology.
Does she analyse me or something. Does she know something I or other people don't know (about myself I mean)?
*I still don't get it, why everyone hates her so much? I've heard sayings that she killed dogs for pleasure but i never saw strong evidences that could potentially leave no doubts about what she did.*
I have social anxiety. I cant talk to anyone not even my own family without feeling anxious...I get these rare occasions where I am more 'social' then usual but they are really rare. I managed to obtain a girlfriend knew her for 2 years decided to tell her I liked her...dated for 2 years...Prior to being in a relationship with her I was her very awkward, quiet/anxious guy who wouldn't say much...as soon as she decided to be with me, conversations between her and I flowed so smoothly I began to talk without thinking of what to say(I'm always in this thought loop of what should I talk about).
What can I do to allow conversations to just flow like that...as soon as I try to talk with someone I immediately start thinking 'Hmm what should I say? what should I talk about?'
I want to be able to go to a coffee shop and order coffee without feeling so anxious, I feel it is difficult to just do everyday things like this.
What can I do?
>What can I do?
The only thing you can do.
*And what's the other community? I'd like to ask her a couple things.*
*If that question was referred to Alice then i'll have to inform you that she's long gone. I do believe she will post another one of those threads at 8 AM, so you know where to find her.*
*Fine, by the way thank you for the informations.*
You are very welcome, it is my sworn duty to expose dark entities like her. Please forgot about talking to her, forget about knowing about her and please forget her in general, it's not worth it.
had mental issues for as long as I can remember, weed triggered shizophrenia and panic attacks.
I felt completely out of reality, I cant describe it, doesnt matter what I did, I always felt unreal and disturbed.
And always had panic attacks build up.
I managed to talk myself out of it, I dont know how I did it.
So the shizo phase was only 3-4 days after weed but the panic attacks stayed for a little longer. However nowadays, around 1 year later, I have none of those problems anymore, only slight depression.
I read online about a shizo guy and it triggered me a little bit, I felt a panic attack to build up and had to convince myself for 2 days that I am perfectly fine and only overexxagerating.
My question: How likely is it for me to fall back into a shizo, panic attack phase? Do I need professional help after all? Can someone overcome mental issues by himself without help?
Honest question. What is the psychology behind your forced stutter in text? Are you mirroring real life or just projecting a defining trait onto your online anonymous identity?
